    Injury update
    McCarthy said the injuries to report from Monday night's game included safety Atari Bigby (bicep strain), cornerback Charles Woodson (toe) and wide receiver Ruvell Martin (finger). The first official injury report for the Detroit game will be issued tomorrow.

    McCarthy said linebacker A.J. Hawk, who returned from a chest injury to lead the team with 10 tackles against Minnesota, felt fine after the game and reported no problems.

    Running back Ryan Grant, who was back in action after being sidelined for most of the preseason with a hamstring injury, reported some soreness in the hamstring at halftime. McCarthy said it affected Grant on his 57-yard run in the fourth quarter.

    "It's just something that we're being cautious with," McCarthy said. "It's unfortunate for him. I know he's a little frustrated with it, but he was not at full strength last night. I thought he did a very good job of giving us what he could."

    It appears a couple of injured players who were inactive for the opener will be returning to the practice field this week. Wide receiver James Jones, who is recovering from a sprained knee, is expected to practice Wednesday, and center Scott Wells (back/trunk), is expected to practice this week as well.

    McCarthy said guard Josh Sitton, also sidelined with a knee sprain, is getting close to returning and that the team will see how he does with his rehab work Wednesday.

    turf toe returning a punt, really sucked cause most fans hated seeing him returning punts in the first place.

    official injury report comes out tommorow, hopefully noone new gets added to the list and some guys get updgraded.

    thought that punt return resulted in a shoulder issue?

    I just hope Wells or the Packers don't rush him back too soon on the back problem, like they did in the second preseason game when he aggravated it and has been out since.
    Spitz did a solid job at center Mon. night against one of the most formidable lines in the league and Detroit doesn't present as strong a front as the Vikings did or Dallas and Tampa Bay will.
    Maybe erring on the side of caution and giving Wells more time would be the right decision. Better to hold him out to heal for a couple of early games they can win without him than lose him for the harder games coming up the rest of the way.
